How to Make Fascinators

What is a Fascinator?

A Fascinator is a small, decorative headpiece worn by women on formal occasions. It may comprise a small hat or a large coill or layering of material via a band, clip, pin or comb. Materials to make fascinators may include sinamay, feathers, crystals, satin, silk and other similar fabrics.  It may be of any color or a combination of shades or contrasing colors.

Creating Fascinators

Fascinators are appropriate hair coverings for weddings, christenings, race meetings, cocktail and garden parties. Styles vary from occasion to occasion, but the main point is that the fascinator should match the style and color of the dress where possible, or provide a bright highlight to a darker dress.
